The pain au chocolat (chocolate croissant) was amazingly buttery and chocolately. The store is full of great baked goods and colorful treats. The coffee here is much better than my experience at Boulangerie Julien- still cannot make up my mind yet comparing each pain au chocolat.
Worked from here almost every single day. Pastries and breads were top notch, the best I've found in Paris.
The lunch menu is divine, as well. Can't recommend this place more highly.
The line was ridiculously long, and the people in it were in good spirits--a very good sign. I ordered pains au chocolat, croissants, a demi-baguette, and a millefeuille. All delicious. I had to pass several boulangeries to get here, but it was worth it.
Macarons are Americans Krispy Kreme!
When in Paris there are many key food items to try and one of the most popular and favorite is the MACARON.
Think of a mini Whoopie Pies (Cookie Cakes) with better than Oreo filling! These babies may be little but they are BURSTING with FLAVOR! The perfect sweet afternoon snack while shopping in this fun & funky area of Paris (There is a rad Vintage Clothing shop next door).
Boulangerie Heurtier has much more to offer than Macarons and they are not famously known for them but take my advice "tourists"... this is where you want to grab yourself a few.
Your normal "Disney Land" tourists will go to the famous Ladurée or Pierre Hermé for Macarons so they can parade around Paris showing off their fancy little box they spent a fortune on.
Is that REALLY what you want? Why not go where the locals go and grab yourself some grade A Macarons for a much affordable price!
Plus since they are so little..help yourself to like 12.. hate yourself later. ;-)
This place is awesome! It's hard to find a boulangerie that has seating, but this one has two areas, one downstairs and one upstairs, I'd suggest going upstairs and sitting by the window, which is great for people watching.
My girlfriend enjoyed her pastries, but I was in heaven with a salmon sandwich with mushrooms. Very tasty and filling!
Service was super slow at first, but it got better when it wasn't just one guy trying to serve the entire area.
R.I.P. Boulangerie Heurtier.
You are loved and will be greatly missed.
(although...I am praying for reincarnation....er...reconstruction? I hope the construction team were merely renovating and not destroying).
See you next year??? maybe?
The price-niveau was expectably high for Paris.
The breakfast is alright.
The fact that the waiter ripped us off, although we advised him of that- and he did not admit- made the breakfast a quite angrily experience.
Fantastic bread, great selection of sandwiches.
We wanted a light lunch and we stopped here for a ham and cheese sandwich. The staff was friendly and helpful and allowed my meager attempt at french without too much laughing. Not laughing, perhaps smirking??? Anyhow stop in for a quick bite to eat and you will not be disappointed.
I lived across the street from this bakery on Rue de la Verrerie. Almost daily I would visit. They make some of the sublimely most beautiful bread and baked goods on Earth. Have them slice a 2 euro loaf and you are golden for the rest of the day. Anything here will undoubtedly ruin your chances of ever enjoying any baked good again back home-- maybe best not to visit...
Good, quick, cheap lunch!
Best pain au chocolat (chocolate croissant) after trying many in Paris
Had the fortune of having an apartment across the street from this excellent Boulangerie. Stopped in nearly daily during my one week stay and never encountered anything I wouldn't recommend to friends.
If you're in the area, it's a must do. If you're in Paris, it's worth seeking out...
I give this place 5 stars because I went in here 3 times in the week I was in Paris for macarons. Their passion fruit/chocolate macarons made my trip complete! They had a huge selection of them and probably the best pricing as well (still not cheap, 12 macarons for 13 euro!). They also offer a great deal for lunch on the go. We picked up lunch here one day to take to the park for a picnic dinner for later.. (yes, I said picked up lunch for dinner..) They offer a good deal - 7.50 euro gets you a sandwich or some other meal like option (Brandon got the croque monsieur and I got a fougasse? - some sort of rosemary foccacia type bread with chevre, spinach, and tomatoes on top), a dessert of your choice, and a drink. Not a bad deal! I tried the millefeuille for dessert and it was amazing! The whole meal packed up nicely and lasted us on our trip to the Eiffel tower where we enjoyed our meal in a nice quiet park near the crazy tourist trap with a bottle of rose. I'm so sad I don't get to visit this place until I somehow find a way back to paris. Oh - and I can't fail to mention that every time I went in here - each person who helped me was extremely nice. Some spoke english, some not, but that's ok because we figured it out! I love this place!
Favorite part of my trip to Paris. My French is mediocre, at best, and the staff was very friendly & helpful. More importantly, the breads, quiches, and sandwiches were all delicious.
